Follow the rules

Sometimes I cannot believe the rules I have to make. I don't know if my kids are just overly creative or trying to drive me crazy. Here are some of our newer and stranger ones:

You must wear underwear (at all times)
You cannot keep rocks in your shoes
Our coffee table is not a climbing wall
You cannot steal your sisters clothes and hide them
You must sit in your own car seat/booster seat
You cannot paint each other (with anything)
Hairbrushes are for hair only
Toothbrushes are for teeth only
Marshmallows are not breakfast food
Steps tools with lids are not actual toilets

While I find it absurd that I have make these rules, I do insist they are followed. My kids think these rules are negotiable. My life seems like one giant ancient Chinese proverb- may I live in interesting times.
